PSG to make small screen streaming debut with Amazon docuseries

March 19 – French champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are to feature in their own behind-the-scenes docuseries, produced by Amazon, later this year.

To be aired on the Prime Video streaming platform, the series will include exclusive footage from the current 2019/20 season and over the last 50 years, including interviews with current and former players, as well as coaches, supporters and club executives.

PSG’s in-house production team and CAPA will film the series.

Amazon has increasingly built a footprint in European football with Premier League live rights in a three-year £90 million package acquired in the last round of bidding, as well as announcing in January that it was partnering with Germany’s Bundesliga via Amazon Web Services (AWS), as its official technology provider.

That deal will see Amazon’s technology division focus on delivering enhanced stats and graphics as well as new and personalised fan experiences.

In the docuseries football content area Amazon debuted with a Manchester City documentary and has since featured Leeds United and Borussia Dortmund. It has also opened a Napoli store on its platform

Juventus from Italy, Boca Juniors from Argentina and Sunderland have featured in shows on rival streaming service Netflix.
